Ms. Tracey Spruill
Hello my name is Tracey Maria Spruill. I have over 24 years of experience teaching second grade. I am coming to Walnut Creek from Leesville Elementary School where I served as a second grade teacher for 16 years. Prior to Wake County, I taught 10 years in Chesapeake, Va. I am very excited to start the next chapter of my career at Walnut Creek Elementary and eager to be your child's teacher.
My classroom is a student-centered environment, where students are encouraged and empowered to take ownership of their actions and learning. I am passionate in my commitment to two things: maximizing individual student performance and instilling a sense of self-worth among all students that will last them a lifetime.
I was born in Jersey City, NJ and raised in Rowland, NC with my lovely parents, two sisters and two brothers. After graduating from South Robeson High School, I attended Fayetteville State University, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Early Childhood Education with a concentration in counseling.
I am blessed with two beautiful daughters, Whitney and Tiffaney. Whitney received an undergaduate degree from Fayetteville State University in Biology and is now at Georgetown University where she is studying to get a master in Cancer Biology Research. Tiffaney is a Junior at North Carolina Central University majoring in Nursing. I am a Life time member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated… where we believe in serving All Man Kind!
